Dear Followers and Friends,
I am starting a new project today. I will be running a daily haiku from well-known haikuists. Many are members of the Haiku Society of America of which I am Second Vice President. http://www.hsa-haiku.org. Many of the poets featured are also ones whose work appears in my book, Haiku and Senryu: A Simple Guide for All where poems are analyzed.
I hope you enjoy this feature. Some of the haiku I will be running are senryu (haiku about human nature that are often humorous.) Today’s haiku happens to be a senryu with double entendre.
If these poets have a website, I have listed it. If not, I have included the title of one of their books. Check out their websites, if listed.
I hope this daily haiku gets you reading and writing haiku on a daily basis, and that it deepens your understanding of haiku, a form that is often misunderstood.
